All About: Bankshot / Trickshot Basketball
Bankshot basketball is an exciting new game of skill and challenge from the USA that is often described as a "crazy golf, but with a basketball." Players of all ages and abilities, including disabled participants, proceed through a course of angled, curved and non-conventionally configured brightly colored backboards, banking shots off the Bankboards and through the rims. Bankshot Basketball is non-aggressive and entirely inclusionary. Participants play alongside, not against, each other, making it ideal for families, promotions or competitions alike.
A Bankshot course consits of 6 stations each with a uniquely shaped Bankboard. Each Bankshot requires a different banked shot to score. Some shots demand carroms off two backboards, some are ricochets and some diabolically maddening shots have three Bankboards and two rims. Players use a scorecard to track their score as they shoot increasingly difficult shots at each of the stations. The game was devised as the first total-mix, non-exclusionary sport that wheelchair athletes and the able-bodied can play together with neither at a disadvantage. "If someone using a wheelchair wants to play traditional basketball or any other running sport against a person without disabilities, the able-bodied person must get in a wheelchair to equalize the advantages, Bankshot eliminates this dilemma. Instead of size, quickness and strength-skill, intelligence and shooting touch are what counts.
